If luxury and proximity to the beach are a necessity for your north coast vacation, then Casa Por- do- Sol in Dillon Beach is the home for you. The owners have tastefully redecorated this 2500+ square foot house. No amenity was overlooked. Casa Por-do-Sol is situated at the end of a private street with plenty of parking. It is one of sixteen homes built directly behind the dunes of Dillon Beach and is less than a 5 minute walk to beach access.
A large deck off the entrance of the home looks across the street and to the east where you will find unobstructed views of beautiful pastures, grazing deer and morning sunrises. Once you walk in through the front door, a small foyer leads into the heart of the home. Floor to ceiling windows allow you to take in the amazing view of the ocean. A balcony is situated off the great room where you can enjoy the fresh ocean breeze and crashing of the waves. To the right of the foyer is the living room with a large and comfy sectional, a 60 inch flat screen TV and a beautiful gas fireplace to warm you up on those chilly nights. To the left of the foyer, a hand crafted 12 foot table made out of reclaimed wood is a true showpiece and seats up to 14 people. The kitchen has beautiful cabinetry, brand new appliances and gorgeous granite counter-tops. Ample room, a thoughtful design and fully stocked, this is a home meant for entertaining a large family or a cozy vacation for two. The entire great room and kitchen have stunning wide plank acacia hardwood floors, dual pane windows and vaulted 10 foot ceilings.
Off of the living room is the master bedroom and bathroom. Large floor to ceiling dual pane windows grace you as you enter this room. Plush carpet, a king size bed, large leather chair, flat screen TV and vaulted ceilings make this room a true oasis. The master bathroom has a large walk in shower and travertine tile.

On the south side of the house and off of the kitchen are the additional two full bathrooms, complete with walk-in showers and travertine tile, and the remaining three attractively decorated bedrooms. One of the three bedrooms faces west with stunning ocean views and the remaining two bedrooms face south with partial ocean views.
